If you use foam tires, you know that precise camber adjustment is required to ensure long and even tire wear. To properly set the camber on your car, draw a line across the tires? contact patches with a piece of chalk. Drive the car around the track for a few minutes, and then pull the car off the track and check the chalk. The chalk will show the contact patch the tires have with the track surface. If the chalk has worn away on the outside of a tire, shorten the camber rod slightly to increase negative camber. Do the opposite if the chalk has worn away on the inside of the tire.
